Join us for a 30th anniversary remastered version screening of Pelle the Conqueror. The film won the Palme d’Or at the 1988 Cannes Film Festival The film also won the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film, 1988; it was submitted to the Academy by the Danish government, giving Denmark its second consecutive win after Babette’s Feast.

Lasse, an elderly and widowed farmer, and his young son Pelle, join a boat-load of immigrants to escape from impoverished rural Sweden to Denmark’s Baltic island of Bornholm. They are employed at a large farm in Denmark, where they are treated as the lowest of the low. It is ultimately their loving relationship which sustains them through a difficult year.

The film is 150 minutes, and will be available to watch online from Friday, November 13th until Friday, December 11th. Click here to watch the film’s trailer and learn more about how to watch.
